WASHINGTON, DC-Mazza Gallerie has come under new management now that owner TIAA-CREF–which acquired the high-end, 300,000-sf shopping center in late May for $76.5 million–has chosen Urban Retail Properties Co. to oversee the retail destination. Urban Retail takes over duties from Mid-America Asset Management Co. Inc.

“We have been active in the Washington, DC market for over 20 years, both in the retail and government services sector, so our knowledge of the market and the retail landscape is unparalleled in the marketplace,” says Urban Retail CEO Ross Glickman.

The mall, located in the Friendship Heights section of the District on the outskirts of Chevy Chase, MD, started out as a three-level property in 1977 that would later emerge from a massive makeover in 1999 as an updated four-story structure. Boasting a two-acre spot on popular Wisconsin Ave., the property is presently home to such upscale retailers as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s Store.
